I have a pair of Technica's i've usedf for 4 years. been punched out on the and grinded many times in the toe box area. but i've never been able to get the right fit. my pinky toes feel cramped all the time. evenmore so, i can now make my feet move up and down in them, as if the padding on the top and bottom have been compressed. i also noticed now that my heel lifts, and feels like the heel area lining has been compressed to the max, because i feel the heel hitting a a small wall/bump/ledge when i lift the heel. there also really soft, and have gotten really really soft over the years, i can flex alot in them, and i never hit the wall, it just keeps going, just accumlated resistance.
brand wise, which boot company usually has a wide fit in the toe box area, and good heel cup?
another thing, would an insole like superfeet red be able to compensate for the overall lining compression problem?
...lastly, am i using the boots for too long? they were only $150. and i've gotten 4 good years out of them, Should i just get new boots?
thanks guys, any recs?
